I'm running a CPU and PSU of a similar era to yours but I don't game with the machine and also have no idea of what that game is or requires. I am interested to see what others might come up with and their reasons why as I do have an idea of what could be run in that machine.

My current monitor resolution is 1280x1024.
But it can be maxed up to 1920 x 1440. Thanks! =)
